The Cholsey and Wallingford Railway is a preserved former Great Western Railway branchline that links the national railway network at Cholsey, with the historic market town of Wallingford, Oxfordshire. Trains run on selected weekends and bank holidays throughout the year and, where available, are steam hauled.
Known locally as "The Bunk", passenger services ceased in 1959. Having secured the line in 1981, the CWR Preservation Society now aims to re-create a GWR Station, similar to the original, at its site in Hithercroft Road. The photograph above depicts visiting Pannier Tank No.9466 on a re-creation goods train in 1999.
